During a beginning to intermediate metal-working crash course, students will learn how to properly wield a variety of hand tools, shape solder with a torch, and handle hammers to shape copper into an elegant ring. Expert metal-manipulators douse absorbent pupils with their abundant knowledge of piercing, stone setting, and finishing before setting them free to coerce metal on their own. Jewelry Creations Workshop's staff of friendly silversmiths are skilled at teaching the precision, attention to detail, and creativity required to craft fingerbling so sparkling it attracts hummingbirds. All materials and tools will be provided, including the copper needed to make your ring.

Shula’s Athletic Club—named for Don Shula, the NFL Hall of Famer who coached the Miami Dolphins to a Super Bowl trophy in 1972—doesn’t find it hard to fill its sprawling 40,000 square feet of space. A cardio room with more than 50 pieces of equipment, a spinning center, weight rooms, fitness-class studios, and basketball courts spread through the facility, luring athletes for independent workouts and personal-training sessions. Dozens of weekly fitness classes range from calorie-burning Zumba workouts and Vinyasa-yoga sessions to spin classes that help students practice for the day they have pedal-powered cars.
The athletic club also accommodates older exercisers with aquatic aerobics and seated Silver Sneakers workouts, and it keeps kids busy with confidence-building youth sports programs. Young legs run over a new 60-yard athletic field or nine lighted tennis courts where kids whack tennis balls and low-flying hot-air balloons with rackets.

Everglades Holiday Park unveils the natural splendor of one of Earth’s last undisturbed territories with invigorating airboat tours and interactive alligator shows. Visitors to the untamed swamp explore its wetlands and observe its animal residents, and tour guides keep encroaching gators at bay with pointed comments of historic and ecological significance. The powerful airboat fleet features covered passenger compartments for all-weather observation and an innovative zephyr-harnessing propulsion system that allows boats to swiftly skim across the Everglades’ grassy rivers while sneaking up on unsuspecting patches of spanish moss. The park is also home to Animal Planet's Gator Boys; most of the reality show's episodes are filmed here.
The park complements boat tours with 20-minute gator shows, which bring patrons face-to-jaw with the impressive mandibles of live alligators and include a presentation that sheds some light on nature’s last remaining dinosaurs. The boat captains are always available for private charters, which can be stocked with food, beverages, and ice at the park’s 24-hour general store before heading out for fishing expeditions or leisurely cruises through the glades.
